You allow or disallow usernames to be in the "Administrators" group.

Administrator is local, Domain Admins are global.  Whomever you don't want changing things, keep them out of those groups.  Usually, Domain Admins are members of the Administrator group.

OK . Sorry for being dim but......

Administrators (group) is local to what?

Domain admins - i am comfortable with this. Does global mean domain-wide or beyond?

Why would you use one over another. Sorry I am being dim.

Local groups and accounts are local to the machine - they exist on every machine.  Usually, Global groups are members of Global Groups.  Global Groups are your domain groups and accounts - they exist on your Domain Controllers and apply all across your domain/AD Forest.
